I searched on the internet to find the price off the sd 512 memory card from panasonic that will be used with the kn7000.
The price is : 549,95 Us Dollars.
I find this very expensive...I thought it would be much cheaper than the harddisk.
Greetings,
Alain

Granted that this is a lot of money, but on the other hand, how much space do people who have SX3/6 hard drives actually use on them? Its all very well having several gigabytes of capacity available, but is any more than a small fraction ever utilised? I reckon that any advance that removes possibly unreliable mechanical components from the system is worth doing.

read http://www.synthzone.com/ubbs/Forum25/HTML/000503.html and these questions about the cards have already been answered.

A 1 GB card is due to be released this year.

In terms of technics format these sizes are purely academic. Most owners will fit their entire collections of songs and floppies on one 32 or 64 or 128 MB card.

The only reason to have more is to download an entire CD of digital audio at Red Book Standard on to the card to listen on the 7000...

The hard drive that has all my music on it only totals 320 MB. It has over 6000 songs on it from all formats except raw wav for recording cd's that are on another hard drive. This is a 15 year collection. I would never consider having that all available for the keyboard as many are just archived for requests. 512Mb would be a lot of memory for our purpose.

I agree. I can't imagine myself needing more than about 128Meg unless I was storing digital audio files.

if that's all you have Bill, it will easily fit on a 128 card if you save it all in 6000 format and particularly fill the sequencer with multiple songs and midis.

Thanks Alec for that bit of information. I hadn't thought of that. That is really good to know.
Happy Easter Season to ALL

Hello,
Thanks for the reply.
I hope I will have enough with 128mb or 258 mb.
I have until now 300 disks ( 3000 songs) in technics format for the kn6000/6500. All sequencer files.
I have a kn6500 with a hdsx6 with three partitions and now I have on each partition 800 mb free.
Maybe I will not need the Sd memory cards if I connect my kn7000 to my Pc through the usb card.
I now have a backup with the program hd techmanager 6000 on my harddisk from my Pc.
I just wonder if it will be possible to load the files that are on the backup on my pc to the kn7000.
Every file ( every song) is linked to a specific disk.....will I see the link when I load this in the kn7000 or will it be better to have a Sd memory card.
I would like to be prepared.
Thanks a lot and a happy Eastern to you all,
Alain

Hello,
I think when the 1,024 MB SD-Card will be available, the 512 MB Card will become much cheaper.
Best regards

Hi Crysyl,
Welcome to the Technics Forum.
I agree with what you posted here, although memory tends to go up and down in price with supply and demand. I have seen 30 and 50 % here in silicone valley where they manufacture a lot of it, within the same month.
You have a great website. We all are greatful for your sharing of Technics Materials.
